    He actually has the worst minutes per point record of all 5 and by quite a distance, incidently Kelly has the best!

    Playing for CS points is boing!

    Debating on a transfer of Zaha to Grealish this week to free up funds to allow a double transfer for free of Mane and Mousset to Alli and Rashford the following GW

    For GW18 front 8 would be

    Alli Son KDB Maddison
    Vardy Rashford Abraham

    Grealish first sub on bench. I know Grealish is on 4 yellows but I’d have him mostly as first sub over Xmas

    Would also be of the opinion that not playing Zaha if you have him this week means you’ve made a wrong decision somewhere.

    The wrong decision may be that you have him and don’t actually rate him as an option, but there’s no way you can justify keeping him in your team but not using him in games like this.

    Sold Jimi last night for Rashford. My thinking was that Rashford has the better fixtures and higher ceiling over the next few weeks. Think I regret it now though, Jimi has never let me down.

    Also fear not having Abraham against Bournemouth, could be a big rank killer if he goes off on one.

    This exactly, the person asking the question brought in Zaha for a reason, either back that reason or transfer him out.

    The sample size of the whole season is ridiculous, players fluctuate and go on runs all the time. I have Zaha for the last three weeks, 15 points over that period. I brought him in cause he has unbelievable fixtures. If he blanks again this week then I'll call it a bad job and he'll be gone but he's never going to sit on my bench.

    Jimi to Abraham for -4 worth it?

    It would have taken me 2 transfers to make the same move,I held off as Jiminez just keeps getting points no matter who he plays against.
    I think my front 3 of Jiminez,Vardy and Abraham should garner enough points for me.

    I'll hold until they play their Europa League game tonight.

    I seem to recall Jimi having a good record vs Spurs

    Yep he is.
    Raul Jimenez is suspended for Wolves' final Europa League Group K clash with Besiktas after collecting his third booking of the competition against Braga.

    Same as, I got in Zaha for the current run of games he has.

    If you don't start him this GW then you'd have to wonder why you'd have transferred him in.

    He was a buy and set for GW 15-21 for me. And then out the gap!

    Any news on when Boly is back? He's the only bench fodder I have that doesn't play at all. I want all players available over Xmas.

    My team is going ok.0.5m in the bank, one transfer.
    Problem Candidates are
    GKs
    (A) Pope: keep for another week or get in Guita or Heaton (also have Button)
    Def:
    (B) Reid to Fernandez or other 4.4m (rest are TAA,Kelly,Soy,Lundstram)
    Mids :
    (C) KDB to Son maybe,(rest are Zaha, Cantwell,Mane, Maddison)
    Forwards:
    (D) Jimenez to Abraham maybe (rest are Vardy and Auba)
    So a,b,c,d or bank, leaning towards b at the moment.

    Any Mount owners around still??

    Might give him one last chance - would love to bank but my Chelsea supporting work colleague reckons Tomori might be benched for the foreseeable so might get Kelly in as cover for a few weeks

    Having Mount in your team is the FF equivalent of still having your Halloween decorations up

    Just off loaded Mount and Jimi to Ali and Ings. Needed rid of Mount and wanted Spurs cover but a bit sad to be parting with Jimi as hes served me very well

    :D:D:D

    True, I literally don't know how he's still there....I'm blaming everything on Harry Kane


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,325 ✭✭✭✭Fitz*


    My double SHU experiment is forcing me to put Ings on the bench. Ings probably in the best goalscoring form of his PL life at the moment.

    The smart decision would be to bench 2nd SHU defender in favour of Ings but stubbornness is stopping me. Maybe I'll bench Alli instead.....away to Wolves is tricky

    Or bench boost
    What’s rest of bench

    Pope, Rico & Cantwell. Wouldn't really expect more than 5 points from them combined so not sure if BB is worth it.

    I’m expecting at least 6 from Pope .......
    A goal or assist from Alli and you are in double digits
    Which is a success for that chip with no hits to factor in


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,035 ✭✭✭✭eh i dunno


    Any changes you can see here lads

    Pope
    Robertson Soyuncu Lundstram
    Mane Zaha martial maddison
    Kane Vardy Jimi

    Gazzinga Baldock awb Cantwell

    Thinking of moving Robertson and Jimi out and bringing in aurier and rashford. Have two free transfers. But it seems a bit sideways

    What's the likelihood that one of Mane/Salah getting rested again before they head off for the cup?

    Have Mane in my team but tempted to bring in Salah as well for this week expecting them to run riot at Watford as usual.

    That would be a bit too much. More likely after with the fixture pile up.

    After last GW I left Aurier to start and put Kelly first sub. Mainly because Kelly is playing in a Derby.

    Now I’ve switched it around.

    Start Kelly or Aurier ?
